We are selling our flat in Stilton. Will my solicitor have to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Skipton conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently currently.
I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of obstruction in Stilton conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Stilton.

My mortgage broker has suggested using their property lawyer for the conveyancing in Stilton - Is it not simpler better to just use them?
